Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot $114.99
The cabin doesn’t have Wi-Fi. Your mom told you it did, thought she was “pretty sure” and, holy s**t, this family vacation just got so much longer. Your savior has come in the form of Huawei’s mobile Wi-Fi unit, a 4G mini device. Huawei is a Chinese brand not yet well-known in the United States, but its stylish, highly portable products have slowly been crossing over. (Just make sure to get the unlocked version.)
Air Head Pillow $29.95
It’s easy to think travel pillows are unnecessary and, at worst, kind of dorky right up until the moment when your head meets a stiff airplane seat, and you start doing that embarrassing thing where your head falls onto the shoulder of the person next to you.

With an inflatable core and a layer of open cell foam to cushion your head, you will straight up be the comfiest dude on the plane.
G2 Pen $11.72 for a 5 pack
Evan Spiegel, Snapchat’s founder, has been “using these pens since day one.” Pilot’s G2 gel ink rolling ball pen has an ultra-fine point that glides so smoothly, and it’s currently Amazon’s best-selling pen so you know it’s legit. There’s something so much more satisfying about writing things down with a pen, whether it’s a phone number or your designs for the next big social app.
No Shine Lip Balm $7.50
You didn’t know you were going to be seated next to your mile-high soul mate on your flight home, yet here we are. Now you’re talking (She works in marketing! You do, too!), and you can feel your lips crack and, oh god, she seems to be casting quick glances at them as that gross white stuff gathers in the corners of your mouth. Brickell’s No Shine Lip Balm has your back in a very real way; covertly slap some of it on, and it’s to the moon, my friend.
Adissage Slides $30.00

These slides are locker room staples for a good reason, and we’re currently living in the era of slides as trendy footwear, from RiRi’s Fenty Pumas to Lil Yachty’s Gucci sandals.
Daycraft Slab Lined Notebook $104.00
You are an important person, with important thoughts and important ideas. The Hong Kong-based brand Daycraft’s Gold Slab Lined Notebook announces this to the world, and it’s a worthwhile splurge to channel your champagne wishes and caviar dreams. The notebook structurally resembles a gold ingot, with creamy pages and a separated spine allowing pages to lay perfectly flat. 999.9 percent pure thinking indeed.
D-Lux Camera $1,095.00
Leica’s D-Lux compact camera is equal parts simplistic, handsome form and features that deliver on every level. The lens is incredibly fast with a sensitivity range that makes magic with available light and natural colors. The camera’s viewfinder comes in a high 2.8 megapixel resolution allowing for a high contrast image. Your iPhone camera is great, but Leica’s camera is perfect for the burgeoning photographer honing their skills while traveling over the holidays.
Detox Essential Oil Blend $29.00
This essential oil blend is for when you need to get un-hungover real quick, whether you’re waiting in the world’s longest line or you’re on your way to the family function. It relieves that special holiday hangover from hell, the one made even worse by the amount of sugar you consumed in addition to the beers and eggnog you pounded. This blend—a mix of 100 percent natural cardamom, geranium, juniper, and lavender—soothes headaches, nausea, and jumpy nerves. Keep this in your desk at work or apply it in the car when you’re about to have three hours worth of “What are you doing with your life?” conversations with relatives.
PowerCore+ 13400 Portable Charger $39.97
We don’t need to explain why the Anker portable charger is a necessity.

Topo’s utility bag is both sturdy and discreet, fitting easily inside your luggage.
Ivory Edition Playing Cards $9.95
Theory11’s Ivory Edition cards are for when billiards need to be a little bit extra. Regular sets of playing cards are cool, but they aren’t designed in collaboration with Steve Cohen, “The Millionaire’s Magician” and the star of the Waldorf Astoria’s magic show. Having a set of playing cards, particularly ones printed with gold metallic ink, is classy AF and low-key fun and easy to whip out during flight delays or to impress your grandparents (who’ve made 10 comments today alone about everyone being on their phones.)

Santa says you’ve been...a very good boy this year. Treat yourself to a pair of Carrera’s sleekest sunglasses, a classic aviator frame from their Maverick collection.
